    Will a green cotton air filter for the 140bhp tdi fit my 170bhp tdi?

    Hi,

    Just looking at doing the basics to my a3 and looking for a green cotton air filter.

    They have one listed on the website although thats for the 140bhp tdi engine. Should this fit and work in my 170bhp version?

    Thanks
    Mark

    Thanks

    Waxacar Green Performance Air Filters

    I've compared it to the mk6 passat with the tdi 170bhp engine and it's the same filter so guessing it will?

    I thought the green cottons were ok mainly the k&n and piper cross which are a little more greasy.

    A panel filter isn't going to give any noticeable improvements by itself.

    Coupled with a milltek exhaust, dpf delete and re-map it should all tie in nicely and give you a nice increase in performance.

    I thought that but to get a dpf delete, miltek exhaust and re-map it was going to cost me 1200 from JBS. Its mostly because of quattro that its that expensive. I have just remapped it for now, which made a nice difference. I really didnt think the panel filter was worth the money though.
